comment Clean database from unused tables
Ok, yes I can see the full list of tables. Isn't a bloated wp_options table bad for performance?

and if not, I should use an array? Does it improve performance or have any other benefit?

comment Disable trash for post type
Yes this can also work, but adds an extra layer on top of the WordPress Published/Draft system, which I was hoping I could repurpose into Activated/Deactivated, exactly the way plugins work in WordPress.

comment Clean database from unused tables
Thanks, my main problem however is how to discover which tables are no longer needed. Some of them I can identify because I am familiar with them, however other plugins create tables and I'm not aware of those. I have the same problem with the wp_options table which has become bloated.

comment Good way to store content and settings for an RSS plugin
How do I write the query that selects all the feed items needed, based on the category the user has selected? I'm with organising the data as suggested, but am struggling to write the query that can get the data required. To recap, the query must use info from both the 2 custom post types and the taxonomy, because it needs to retrieve all feed items (together with feed source info for each item), that are associated (through their feed source) with the selected category.

Is there agreement about how to create the object, should it be via hook or not?

comment Objective Best Practices for Plugin Development?
So what is the best practice when a plugin creates a custom post type and enters data into that post type? Should that data be deleted or not? If not, are there any plugins we can use as a guide for implementing the same 'uninstall' button?
